These stories are taken from the Route 66 News site which goes into much greater detail, has pictures, and also covers a lot more Route 66 items. I just write about the ones of particular interest to me.
FEBRUARY 16-- The Tropics sign in Lincoln, Illinois, may get erected near its original site by next year. If not there, I would say put it up by the welcome center or even the Mill.
FEBRUARY 17-- The Sprague Super service Station in Normal, Illinois, will likely reopen in May. Looking forward to visiting it. And again, I am really happy seeing Bloomington-Normal starting to embrace their Route 66 heritage.
FEBRUARY 24-- The Mill grand opening is set for April 29, 2017, in Lincoln, Illinois. There will be a parade and all sorts of other things going on around it.
Lincoln is another town doing all that it can for its Route 66 heritage and is to be commended.
Lots Going On in Illinois. --RoadIll
